Benefits of Studying Abroad
Studying abroad not only can benefit for International students, but also have much positive effect on the countries which admit these overseas students to the universities. We should encourage young people to study abroad because of these two aspects of benefit.
1. Benefits of students: a. A chance to have the further high quality education, and absorb new and advanced knowledge. This will help them to have advantages for the competition in job markets b. To have the excellent English communication skill. This will be much beneficial for their future. /Lin (1986)/ c. Enrich the life experience of the students, and broaden their vision to view the world. (To feel the intercultural different between motherland and the country where they are studying.) 2. Benefits of the countries: a. Economic benefits b. Foreign students bring lots of new and creative ideas. And this will benefit the local students and the education in their universities. c. Can improve the communication among countries and elevate the reputation of these counties in the world.

Student Name: Wang Wei (Eric) Nowadays, studying abroad has become an important educational mode which can provide higher education for young people. Its benefits have been shown more and more clearly, with the increasing number of international students going abroad. Obviously, not only these overseas students will benefit from the experience of studying in foreign countries, but also they will have much positive effect on the countries which admit them. Firstly, these international students can have high quality education and share excellent educational facilities and resources with local students. This will benefit their competitiveness in job markets when they go back to their countries. Some people argue it that, as Lin (1986) says, "There is some doubt that the value and efficiency of studying in another language when, on return to this country, students have to work in their own language. " But they might be not aware that in most of countries, foreign languages have become a necessary tool of communication in all the fields. For example, English, as the most popular language in the world, has been used widely in the non-English-speaking countries. In these countries, good foreign language skill will help overseas students to have more advantages than local competitors. On the other hand, study overseas will benefit the countries in which international students study. A great amount of foreign students will bring huge economic profits to local educational institutions and residents. In the universities, as one of most important source of finance, overseas students need to pay expensive tuition fees as 3 to 4 times as local students. However, the opposite opinions state, according to Baffle (1991), "â??international students compete for accommodation, making it difficult for home students to find places to live." But it will be ignored much easily, if we compare this negative effect with the huge benefits for local students. For instance, home students can learn the rich knowledge and creative ideas from their overseas classmates, which will enrich their experience of life and help them to understand the world. In conclusion, for both overseas students and their education providers, studying abroad has more advantages than disadvantages. In my opinion, we should encourage young people to study overseas.
